Supply And Demand Curve: Girlfriends Edition

In the Uris Cafe earlier this afternoon, two gentlemen spiffed up in suits had the following exchange: Suit 1: “If you met the perfect girl, would you ditch your girlfriend?” Suit 2: “No way man, the sunk cost is way too high.” To the girls lucky enough to call these men their own, we suggest you try […]

Calm Down About The East Asian Library

Last week, rumors abounded that the East Asian Library was implementing a major policy change. Our Columbia-trained reactive minds got irrationally angry and readied our protest signs, assuming it was similar to the one implemented in Uris during finals last year–no undergraduates allowed. However, a short email exchange with the director of the East Asian […]

Overseen: Thirsty in Uris

A sign has appeared in Uris warning rowdy B-schoolers to keep it outside. Bwog was wondering why a similar sign didn’t exist in Butler, until we realized the obvious (and sad) answer. When you go to a school that treats its students to a kegger, you need to make sure that the library is an alcohol-free zone. When […]

Morningside Heights Is A Den Of Filth

The Health Department is, as of this summer, requiring that every restaurant in New York display the letter grades they most recently received for cleanliness. This is a nightmare for everyone; it’s rare that any restaurant will sneak away with no health violations. The grades will be assigned during the next year, when the Health […]

What It Looks Like When You Walk To Class

Here is some news: the Emporio Armani Fall/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign is public! Here is why that news is sort of relevant: those ads were all shot on our fair campus mere months ago! Take a look: there’s the model shrouded in smoke wearing all black next to a building that looks like Uris, the […]

B-School Trains Russian Spies!

Cynthia Murphy, one of the Russian spies who has destroyed everything that is holy (Montclair, New Jersey) attended Columbia B-School, and got her MBA in May, Bloomberg (not the mayor) confirms. That means we all went to school with a SPY! The Kremlin probably has your UNI on file or something. Putin knows that you […]

New Vending Machines Shock, Offend, Entice

New vending machines in Butler Cafe and Uris are getting macho and crunchy, respectively. The B-School cafeteria, which already basically monopolizes the other vending machines on this campus anyway, is offering FreshDirect microwaveables: Rosa Mexicano Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas with Ranchera Sauce, Terrance Brennan Beef Bourguignon with Egg noodles, and Wild Alaskan Halibut with Wild […]

War on Fun Momentarily Paused

Nathan Bailey, Lenny Langenscheidt and John Nordin, (bottom, middle, top of picture respectively) all CC ’12, get a lot of weird looks.  This is due to the trio’s penchant for free running around campus as the rest of us peacefully walk to class. Free running is essentially the British and American version of Parkour, which […]

Uris Gets Louder

Spotted heading toward Uris earlier this evening: Jim Cramer, the excitable host of CNBC’s Mad Money. He was alone and talking on his cell phone. “He sounded, well, mad,” reported an eyewitness. The reasons for his campus visit are of course a mystery, though Bwog would like to point out that he has a 17 […]

Manhattanville… Solved!

If you have been following the news in even the vaguest capacity over the past few years, or if you’ve ever tried to get a computer in Lerner around 1 PM, you’re aware of the major space crunch Columbia is experiencing. But who needs to move into Manhattanville when you have the garage below Uris, […]
